Last year, Mexican officials said they believed the cartel mistook the family for a rival gang. The family was driving large SUVs like the ones the drug runners like to use. The massacre marked another sad event in the country’s narcotics war that’s responsible for the deaths of as many as 150,000 people.
Montes was taken into custody with two other cartel members, Santiago Casavantes Radovich and Eulalio Domínguez Alanís.
